The singing actress will offer songs from her debut recording on Epic Records, "Morgan James Live: A Celebration of Nina Simone." The evening will also feature tunes from her upcoming studio album, which will combine old-school pop and soul with classic blues roots.
James will be backed by pianist Dave Cook, bassist Brian Cockerham, drummer Tony Mason, guitarist Doug Wamble, saxophonist Ron Blake, trumpeter Lew Soloff and trombonist Mike Fahie.
James was also seen in the Broadway revival of Godspell. Concert dates are also scheduled for June 3 and 17 and July 15, all at 9:30 PM.
